Fished on one of the cuts and this morning and it was slow. Checked the boat launch and there was 2 guys in a shanty about 150 yards out and there was 3 inches of ice. I decided to wait until next week before I go out into the channel. there is a big snow storm supposed to hit this weekend, so time will tell. hope this helps

Can anyone give me an ice report for the dnr launch off Dundas? I would like to try it out in the morning if there's good ice.

Not sure on that side but fished the last 2 days on the east branch in 28 FOW 5 inches there. It was getting a little slushy on top today. Kept 15 caught 40 yesterday and kept 21 today and caught roughly another 40. Yesterday had a surprise when I landed a 28" catfish on on 2# line (see my avatar). Most fish today especially keepers were 4-5' off the bottom.

When you say east bay, how far up were you? Where can I get on at? I've only fished dungras launch and just north of there. Nice catch. I would love to catch some crappies. Thanks

Thanks for the replies guys. Now I have to figure out which side I want to go on tomorrow... That clam six pack is a nice shanty, we sat in one on Simcoe last year when it was -15, nice and toasty with 3 buddy heaters going. Anyone know if the Lakeside bait and tackle still opens at 7:00?

I was there at 7:10 on Saturday they were open. I went by at 6:40 on Sunday and they were closed so probably 7. Not sure if that is every day though.
